Say what you will about Trent Reznor's music, lyrics, or personality — the guy usually crafts impeccably (OK, let's be honest: neurotically) detailed albums. So even though Nine Inch Nails' latest release, The Slip, arrived so quickly on the heels of the conceptual Year Zero and the all-instrumental Ghosts I-IV, it was still surprising to hear a NIN album sound so loose, so impromptu, so ... tossed-off. But hell, it was available entirely free for download, so even the most obsessive Reznorian fanatic — and they are legion — could hardly complain. Still, "the Rez" has got those neuroses to deal with, so with his usual perfectionist zest he's now offering a real, physical, hold-it-in-your-hands (or, if your one of aforementioned fanatics, rub-it-sensually-across-your-naked-torso) CD version the album, complete with bonus DVD, stickers, and other collectible/hordeable/eBay-able contents. Read the details after the jump....

    A physical release of Nine Inch Nails' The Slip will be available worldwide in the upcoming days as a limited edition CD with bonus DVD through the Null Corporation label.

    This CD with bonus DVD edition will be a one time only worldwide run of 250,000 individually numbered digipacks. Each digipack features a six-panel layout, 24 page booklet and an exclusive three sticker set. Art direction by Rob Sheridan.

    The bonus DVD includes 5 live performances filmed during rehearsals for Nine Inch Nails' upcoming tour, including album tracks "Echoplex," "1,000,000," and "Letting You."

    A gatefold vinyl version of The Slip which contains one 180gm vinyl LP and a 24-page booklet will also be released in the US and Canada on August 12 and in the UK on August 18.

So there ya go: 250,000 fetish items for a quarter-million depressive rock fans. Click here for the official website. — J. Graham

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
